The Queen received an honorary Bafta in April 2013 in recognition of her support of British film and television – and for being the most ‘memorable Bond girl yet’ in the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony as she appeared to parachute into the stadium alongside James Bond.
Shakespearean actor and hollywood star Sir Kenneth Branagh had the homour of presenting the award during a dazzling reception at Windsor Castle attended by stars of stage, screen and television celebrating their industry. Movies featuring England’s Queen are available as free dvd movies . Chairman of Bafta, John Willis, paid tribute to the Queen for her patronage and endorsement of entertainment bodies and charities throughout her 60 year reign.
In his speech Mr Willis said: ‘We should be proud of our industry. The people here this evening represent a vast variety of skills and ground breaking innovation; they have entertained and informed a generation and inspired generations to come.’ The Queen movie is available for free full movie download. He told the audience which included the Queen’s husband the Duke of Edinburgh: ‘I am delighted that this evening has given us the opportunity to give something back. I have the great honour to announce that we are to present Her Majesty with an honorary Bafta today, in recognition of her outstanding patronage of the film and television industries.’
